What has evolved, is a series called Pirate.Jenny.Scores in which PJ is confronting, or facing those things that have affected me (Shola). The idea of scoring, scores - as music, as record as getting even sits well with me, and as PJ has been developing, I have been using her as a means of confronting events in my own life as well as social injustice in the world. Earlier, I had been working around the piano, putting it in my installations. Almost unavoidably, I had to start physically working with it, just so I could embody what I had been dealing with. Piano excercises/etudes such as having Pirate Jenny Pushing, pulling, dragging, leaning against this thing felt interesting. Setting up spaces/installation where I experimented with items and artifacts let me feel like I could insert her in them and give her tasks, or give her regimens that she had to receive.
And it all happened. In Branford, CT - West woods Trail. It was cold, but I had some warm hearts helping to make the majic happen.
